Israel Turns Away UN's 9/11 Truther
You may recall our posts about Richard Falk, the United Nations “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967,” who compared Israel to Nazi Germany and is a 9/11 Troofer.
That’s correct. It’s the United Nations. Did you expect something else?
Today Israel barred this freak from entering the country.
(The wire services aren’t mentioning his belief in 9/11 conspiracy theories, of course.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) — Israel has turned back UN human rights envoy Richard Falk upon his arrival at Ben Gurion airport, authorities said on Monday, accusing him of “legitimizing Hamas terrorism.”
“Israel has made clear that Mr. Falk was not invited, nor would be welcome in Israel, under his capacity as special rapporteur” for human rights, the foreign ministry said.
Falk, who is the UN’s monitor of human rights in the Palestinian territories, last week prompted Israel’s ire when he said its policies against people in the territories amount to a “crime against humanity.”
